My son will be going to a university in Montpellier beginning this fall. He will be there for one or two semesters. Colin is looking for a family to live with. He is 21, an education/vet science major, does not drink, smoke, or eat meat. Colin currently goes to USFQ in Quito, Ecuador. He is absolutely fluent in Spanish and English. He can teach baseball, or basketball to kids. Is willing to exchange child care/tutoring for a realistic room and board situation. He really wants to live with a family and participate with the parents and children. He does not just want to be in a room that a family rents to him, if you understand my meaning. Thanks for your help.

Secondly, there are several websites that help students find accommodations (in French only):
These are private agency student housing facilities:
